History of GivingTuesday

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. GivingTuesday is now an independent nonprofit and a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

GivingTuesday recognizes that we each can drive an enormous amount of positive change by rooting our everyday actions, decisions, and behavior in radical generosity—the concept that the suffering of others should be as intolerable to us as our own suffering. Radical generosity invites people in to give what they can to create systemic change.

We encourage everyone to celebrate GivingTuesday and every Tuesday to participate in kindness and giving. While we hope Fairfield CARES will be your charity of choice on the 29th, you can find additional ideas for how you can make a difference on GivingTuesday at
